The Long Afternoon - Swinging Singles [2011]


Published August 3, 2011
Topics rock


The Long Afternoon originally formed as an indie rock group in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1985. Dissolving in the late 80s, guitarist and vocalist Eston Martz carried on studying music and, inspired by the reunions of Wire and Mission of Burma, Martz returned to the studio and reformed The Long Afternoon with drummer Greg Elliott and former Seen bassist Jeff Edmunds. The band released The Luxury Problem (2006) and Signifying Nothing (2009), with third album An Index of Maladjustments (2011) coming August 16, 2011.

Swinging Singles (VULP-0035) is an EP compilation of tracks from previous Long Afternoon releases The Luxury Problem (That's Not What You Said, On the Plane) and Signifying Nothing (Never Tell, Intent, How Did I Get So Far From Where I Should Have Been, Bother). Swinging Singles shows off the variety in mood and style the Long Afternoon are capable of, from angular, spirited and fiery (On a Plane) to cinematic and mood-lifting (Bother). An excellent introduction to the band.
